It's been six weeks since the angels of the apocalypse destroyed the world as we know it. Only pockets of humanity remain.
Savage street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night.
When angels fly away with a helpless girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.
Including making a deal with the enemy.
Susan Ee has eaten mezze in the old city of Jerusalem, surfed the warm waters of Costa Rica, and played her short film at a major festival. She has a life-long love of science fiction, fantasy and horror, especially if there's a touch of romance. She used to be a lawyer but loves being a writer because it allows her souped-up imagination to bust out and go feral.

I hung onto every word,... If you love witty banter, a dangerous apocalypse, and a cling-on-to-your-seat plot, then why haven't you read Angelfall yet? — The Pretty Books
More explicit, vivid, gritty and evocative than any book I've read for a long time... Both horrifying and spellbinding; I've not come across any authors with Susan Ee's unique storytelling method before... It's a book that defies the labels and boundaries of its genre, and a wonderfully spine-chilling read. — Keep Calm and Read a Book
It's rare to read a book that is intoxicating that it is all you can think of... Angelfall is one of those books. It's so full of danger, blood, anger, despair and lust... Susan Ee really has created something of a masterpiece. It truly is a flawless debut worth every bit of hype and then some! — Empire of Books
I'm so happy that I decided to pick up Angelfall! I was immediately sucked into the world and I'd stay up late reading long into the night promising myself just one more chapter which would inevitably turn into several more.... Penryn has quickly become one of my favourite heroines and Raffe one of my favourite book boys... Angelfall has such a cinematic feel to it that I could vividly picture everything in my mind making it easy to absorb myself in this gritty and harrowing world. I can't believe I waited so long to read this absolute gem of a novel but I am glad that I now don't have long to wait for the sequel! — Adventures with Words
